School Programs

Compass Rose Theater brings theater into the classroom and also offers a wide range of after school classes.

In the Classroom

Beyond the Bard

Bring Compass Rose Theater into your classroom with this unique curriculum-based Shakespeare intensive. A professional teaching artist illuminates the beauty of Shakespeare’s text by teaching students both the technical workings and emotional truths in Shakespeare’s words. Students gain a knowledge of the culture and time of Shakespeare which support the text based work. They learn that Shakespeare’s words reveal universal themes and work to prepare a monologue or scene giving them first-hand experience with the theatrical process.

  • Program currently a part of the curriculum at St. Martin’s Day School in Severna Park (7th and 8th grades) taught by Brandon McCoy and Adam Curtis
  • If you are interested in bringing Compass Rose Theater and Beyond the Bard into your school, please contact us for more information.

After School Residencies

Compass Rose Theater offers a variety of theatre classes which are taught after school.

Featured Residency:

Create A Play

Create a character, weave together a story, and create a play! In this exciting afterschool workshop students will explore the theatrical process from building a story, rehearsal, and finally performance. Students will gain confidence and fundamental life skills as they practice the craft of theater.
